Ms. Bart discussed her picture book, A Tale of Two Teddies, with first grade students and their teddy bears. Based on historical fact, the book outlines the conflicting stories of two teddy bears that were created in New York and in Germany at approximately the same time. In the book, both bears claim to be the very first, and state their respective cases to the reader, who is then invited to decide which one should hold the title of “The First Teddy Bear.” The book was published to commemorate the centennial anniversary of the creation of the teddy bear. Ms. Bart also explained the process involved in writing and illustrating the book. The book is published by Portfolio Press. close
